Hey guys,

I love goats and was interested in starting a goat farm. I've got a general idea of what I need to do and how much money I might need, but there are a lot of details I haven't quite figured out. Could anyone provide resources?

On a side note, love everyone's pictures. All of 'em are amazing.

Athena popped on Wednesday! A single buckling, I've named him Hapi!

Unfortunately I lost Artemis about a week before he was born. Found her down and rushed her to the vet but they couldn't do anything... I'm planning on keeping Hapi to honor Arti.

Hapi is so cute! Congratulation! I love his eyes and how he's almost white with only small dark marks (plus I love the mythological names you give to your goats). I'm sorry for your loss of your other one though...

I've always liked goats, and I find them so cute when they are young. When I was a child, I could stay during hours in a petting zoo or a farm to pet them and feed them...
This sunday, I walked around a small farm, and there where two beautiful baby goats still unweated who where sucking on their mother. It was very cute. I wish I had my camera with me...

i have four goats. a mom and a dad, both rescues, then their firstborn child (born on Earth Day 2016) and the most recently born child, who i named taige (he was born march 10th, 2017)

taige is just a rascal, he likes to nibble everything and unroll the toilet paper. he's just adorable. he had a twin at birth, but since it was cold, we lost the other twin :(

in case you're wondering what kind of goats i have, they're all nubians.
sig is a wip, please wait

Don't take this rude as I'm only trying to help. But you really need to get a second goat as they're herd animals. Never have just one goat. :)

      Goats are meant to be together in herds, even small herds of two. They can get scared or stressed out very easily if they don't have partners with them. Despite how much I'm sure your dog plays with her, its very important that you consider getting another goat. Or you could potentially breed her (if she's close to a year) and she could have a baby(s) to accompany her. This is only meant as a kind suggestion C:
